Colors of Grey

Colors of GreyPublisher: Accessible Games

Throughout the ages, there have existed secret societies that have dedicated themselves to the fine art of thievery. These organizations, commonly known as “thieves guilds,” have existed to unite an underground of criminals whose life’s work involves the pilfering of other peoples’ life’s works.


In Colors of Grey, you will be a member of one such secret society, known as the Chameleons – so called for their ability to adapt to any situation. Chameleons consider themselves connoisseurs of fine art and specialize in the theft of rare statues, paintings, drawings, and other such works.


The Chameleon guild has existed for centuries, and being invited to become a Chameleon is an honor extended only to those thieves who are exemplary and exhibit mastery of their craft.


Will you live up to the name, or will you bring disgrace by failing to blend in?

Emperor Edition Gempukku Focus: Art

AEG - Fri, 01/04/2013 - 17:11

By Adrian Burton

Emperor Edition: Gempukku was a fun little project. From an art department stand point it was a small project as it only contained two new pieces per clan. Our initial premise was to have whoever did the Experienced Personality do the Holding as well. It didn’t work for every single one unfortunately.

EEG-Art-Focus-1

Crab Clan

Hida Yamadera - A soul of getting their own experienced personality is a chance to let them come into their own. With Yamadera we wanted him with the new sword he picked up and a touch of his corruption madness mixed with his berserker frothiness.

Yasuki Peddler - Mix Traveling peddler with Of Mice and Men characters and you have the recipe for this. Envisioned were two brothers, the brains and the brawn, working the business.

Crane Clan

Doji Dainagon - Stylish and courtly presence. Dainagon has a bit of a following. We had hoped to get Rebekah Norris back for the art but she was unavailable so Edwin David stepped in for us. He did a great job at capturing the vision that Dainagon is a brain and a beauty in the court, armed with her words and her charm.

The Daidoji Marketplace - A bustling downtown market outside Shiro Daidoji. Alayna put in one or two of her prior characters for fun, can you find them? Peaceful and orderly was the goal for this market.

Dragon Clan

Togoshi Korimi - A close up of the lovely and mysterious Korimi. Steve will never forgive me for making him follow Mario with an experienced 2 of her. Simple and beautiful. He was stoked to show some good close up of tattooed skin in this piece.

Tattoo’s and Trinkets - It only seemed logical to show Korimi getting inked in this piece. We’ve long held the idea that as far as Korimi is concerned her tattoos are her clothes, which makes her very modest indeed by a Togashi’s standard. The tattoo artist is also in theory slated for his own character card as we and story liked him so much. More on that eventually.

Lion Clan

Jade’s Roar - We had long figured David Horne would rock at drawing animals. Little did we know we could get National Geographic quality of lions from him. We wanted them with subtle jade green eyes to show a link to their master but other than that we really let him have free reign on this and we love the results.

The Quartermaster’s Depot - We wanted the place where the Lion store tons of weapons for their forces. Taking a small nod from Raiders of the Last arc we wanted it big. It was key to us to show both scale and what was in the boxes.

Mantis Clan

Moshi Madoka - Traditional, cunning, and not to be trifled with. We though of her as a scholar with some major spiritual power to back her up. Moshi have long tended to be represented like Yoritomo and we’ve been trying to move away from that. Madoka represents the conservative and powerful nature of the Moshi family.

Buried Treasures - That slightly seedy bar where those with an adventurous spirit go and dig up information, be it maps or rumors. We envisioned this as a bar with strong sake and a very smart barkeep.

Phoenix Clan

Kunji - The literal fire bird, for well, the nicknamed fire birds. Kunji is a favorite of ours with its artistic pyromania. Sergio was given Kunji’s prior art and told to make him more fiery and glorious. We think he more than succeeded.

The Mystical Merchant - The nod for inspiration of the character really has to go to James Hong and the characters he plays, also his voice. Our description to Sergio for this was basically ” This is the guy who sells mystical trinkets that no sane person should ever actually want because it inevitably gets them into trouble.”

Scorpion Clan

Shosuro Hawado - In her prior version we wanted to show a bit of her humanity. This card was an occasion to go back to being a ruthless creepy killing machine as she pops out of a wall to gank a guy in the chest before fading away.

The Merchant’s District - The market where you go to get nearly anything, for a price. The city background was a point we really wanted to show, a city rising up behind them. Often scope and scale of the cities in Rokugan fail to translate as well as we like. It’s been a goal to show off how vast cities are more often.

Spider Clan

Daigotsu Negishi - I saw Negishi as a bit of a weird fellow, nearly unkillable due to his corruption. Armor, hair, body all unkempt just him and his knife carrying out his orders. Arrows hang from his body he just doesn’t care he just keeps coming at you.

Purveyor of Questionable Goods - If you can’t get it from the Crane, the Yasuki can’t find it and the Scorpion wont even sell it, you can go to the Spider. We didn’t even want to see the fellow, he is not a man you want to see often.

Unicorn Clan

Shinjo Byung - We wanted her to age correctly, but a life on horseback and outdoors can be a hard one. We didn’t want her aging as a super model, but as a warrior who is out everyday, practicing her art into an elderly matron.

Ide Caravan - A protected wagon train full of merchants set up on a stop along their route. We haven’t see a lot of the Ide in Emperor Edition so it was nice to get a small glimpse of them.

We hope you enjoy these, they were fun to get assembled and we’re proud of them and feel they add some fun pieces to the ever growing world of Rokugan.

Optional Rules - PhobiasPublisher: Ennead Games

Optional Rule: Phobias

 

A phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding.

 

 

Presented here are two features; a d1000 chart that lists 500 phobia name. Some of these are duplicates, or alternate names for the same phobia.

The second is a system for using phobias in your game

 

To use a D1000 chart, roll 3 d10s, ideally each one being a different colour. Nominate one for 000s, one for 00s and the last for 0s. Roll all 3 and check the result.

 

This system has been kept simple and game-system free on purpose, but feel free to modify or make more detailed as you see fit.

 

Note:

This can work for sci-fi games and modern as well as fantasy type games.

January 4, 2013: Another Munchkin Shortage!

Steve Jackson Games - Fri, 01/04/2013 - 08:15
It happened again! Thanks to a combination of insane holiday sales and a shipping delay, our "extra buffer" supply of Munchkin will probably run out around the end of January. We now expect the next batch to hit our main warehouse in mid-February, unless there are further problems. Like that port strike that was kicked back a month but might still happen . . .

As of now, most stores still have Munchkin on their shelves, and most distributors still have copies that they can send to stores. So maaybe we won't really run out, at least not for very long.  Munchkin Deluxe is available (at least for now).  Munchkin Apocalypse is in good supply. And yes, Munchkin Zombies will hit the warehouse in a week or so, so it will be back in stores soon.

We thank you all for buying so darn much Munchkin that we keep running out. It's a good problem to have. And thanks to all those Friendly Local Games Stores too.

Now we're busy working on MORE Munchkin stuff to run out of . . .

Standard - balanced against the races in the Pathfinder Core Rules (1-10 Race Points).

Monstrous - exceptional PC races equivalent to centaurs and other exotics (20+ Race Points).

Our debut race is composed of exotic creatures composed as much of metal and language as of flesh. Coming in at 11 RP it is balanced against the PC races presented in the Pathfinder Core Rules.

We hope that you find them an entertaining and useful addition to your game!

Runeborn

Native to the game world’s moon, the Runeborn came to our world through an ancient lunar gate that ceased functioning shortly thereafter. For generations they have maintained a secret presence on our world.


An eldritch blend of mortal humanoid and living lunar metal they are an unusual breed to say the least.  Well adapted to the airless reaches of their home world, they have found ours to be an abundant paradise by comparison.

Vestige Magic: Moves and Compendium Classes for Dungeon World

RPGNow - Thu, 01/03/2013 - 20:32
 Moves and Compendium Classes for Dungeon WorldPublisher: Lee's Lists

Vestiges are otherworldly powers, unable to directly influence the mortal plane. Each befell some fate after death, some mistaken attempt at godhood, or sprang into existence in their own strange way. Normally working behind the scenes, they are all too eager to slip a hand into reality and connect with a mortal, all in the hope of furthering their unknowable goals.

Tome of Magic, an underappreciated sourcebook from the Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 days, introduced different sourges of power for magic. One of the classes, the Binder, used Vestiges to power his abilities. Here, I present to you a system for doing much of the same in the hot new game, Dungeon World.

Included are the Make a Pact move, for binding a vestige, 15 examples of vestiges just waiting to be bound, and 5 compendium classes, if binding just isn't enough.

Houserule Handbooks: Spellpoint Expansions

RPGNow - Thu, 01/03/2013 - 19:39
 Spellpoint ExpansionsPublisher: Super Genius Games

The spell point system introduce in Houserule Handbooks: Spell Points was designed to be flexible, simple set of rules for replacing the normal spell slot/spell preparation system used by spellcasters in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook with a different resource management system – spell points. Though both successful in this goal and quite popular, the book did little to show how the spell point mechanic can be used to create new options and mechanics beyond just tracking spellcaster resources. While the system has received a small expansion in Houserule Footnotes: Spell Point Feats, this product is the first effort to grow the spell point system to be a more comprehensive option able to cover all spellcasting related classes, archetypes, and combinations, as well as provide new ways that spell points can be used to add more flavorful options to a campaign. As an expansion of the original product, this book requires the use of Houserule Handbooks: Spell Points.
